Sorry Kapri, just realised we swaspped PMs a while back.

There is a bit of a revamp of community mental health at the moment. In patient unit is always busy. Lots of English working here too.

Mail me with any questions.

PaulB - did we have a natter walking back from Fisherman's beach last week? (cub scouts).

Been in Oz for a month, first couple of weeks in Mount Martha and now in the centre of Mornington. I'm just completing my '1st month in Oz' post, but it seems to grow every time I look at it.

This area is fantastic - lots of lovely beaches and plenty for the kids to do.

Seems to me that new roads do not necessarily guarantee a speedier trip in to the city.

Traffic soon increases to meet and fill capacity(!)

If I drive I go at sparrows fart and this is the way it will always operate for me.

We're in Melbourne and have been since Aug 05 and loving it. We 've moved out to Gippsland country and live in Pakenham which is on the edge of the Gippsland countryside.

Dont think so, but Im open to a natter

If you have kids, the 'young bairns wife club' meet every Friday if that helps

It's doing my head in! Aaagghh!
Don't panic!! They are both lovely areas. Spend some time in both when you arrive and hopefully you'll just get a feel for one of them We had a very strong pull towards the hills - even though I thought I'd definitely be by the beach

We stayed in a 2 bed fully self-contained cabin at Chelsea Caravan Park when we arrived. I think, as we stayed for over 4 weeks, it was around $260a week in Feb/March 06.

Hi guys,

have managed to book City Edge Apartments in East Melbourne ( fully furnished and serviced and in a really nice area ) for about £470 for 12 days!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
They are in the city so central for all the tramming and training we'll be doing in the first 2 weeks when we're looking for a 6 month rental. The apartments were actually the cheapest furnished accomodation I could find so be prepared folks to part with your hard cash.

Cheers guys,

*pearly*
